Shima (シーマ) is a character in the anime and manga series Battle Spirits Brave
She has dark blue hair tied up in a ponytail, with the tip of the hair a lighter shade of blue, and pale blue eyes. She wears a purple kimono, and has a spider wrapped around her, whose large brown and yellow legs can move around.
Shima has a very serious, dignified demeanor, and is someone to be feared. She carries around a concealed sword. However, she also has a more gentle, motherly side, and cares about her family above all.
Shima is the wife of Duc, and mother of Rugain. She met Dan, Mai, and Youth when Rugain invited them to talk. She made it clear that she didn't resent them for Duc's imprisonment, and that as the wife of a ruler, she keeps herself prepared for anything.
When Duc became the Prison General, she was prepared to fight him, but it wasn't necessary, as Youth challenged Duc to a battle then. After that incident, she left along with Rugain and other people who supported their family on a journey.
Eventually, Zack and Rugain began to cooperate on making a country where humans and mazoku could coexist. Shima adopted Zack as a part of the family, although he was a human.
After Duc was returned to normal, although Shima was glad to have him back, she was harsh to him in explaining how much Rugain accomplished while he was away.
Shima later comforted Mai, when she was afraid that Dan would die after pulling the trigger.
She went along with Duc in one of the core ships that would hold the battlefield during the final battle.
